More Messages to the Future
The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.
Dear Elliot and Alana,
But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.
Dear My Future Child,
I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.
As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.
My Dear Paloma,
I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.
Dear Jamie and Jason,
My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him
I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.
I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.
Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,
Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.
I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.
When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
